Letter: Hershey is thoughtful, well informed and willing to listen

I am voting for Tony Hershey for the At Large seat on City Council. I have known Tony for well over a decade, and in the time span of our friendship, I have found him to be thoughtful, well informed, willing to listen, and very much a citizen concerned with Glenwood’s present and future. These are all traits which I view as prerequisites for being a good city councilor. I believe Glenwood’s citizens will be well served with Tony Hershey as their At Large councillor.

I am not voting for Tony because he and I agree on everything. In fact, while I was on council, Tony and I had many vigorous debates about the issues facing the city. In the course of those conversations, I found my subsequent decisions more nuanced by considering Tony’s thoughtful reasoning.

If you believe as I do that good governance results from the consensus built from often divergent points of view, I urge you to vote for Tony Hershey for City Council At Large.

Stephen Bershenyi,

Glenwood Springs
